A Matrix Project Management Structure Is a Hybrid Organizational Form
A matrix project management structure is a hybrid organizational form in which a horizontal project management structure is "overlaid" on the normal functional hierarchy.
When three forms of the matrix project management structure are considered,all share the same advantages and disadvantages and at an equal level.
When determining the most appropriate project management structure,considerations need to be made at the organizational level and at the project level.
Generally,the more autonomy and authority the project manager and the project team need to be successful,the more appropriate to implement either a dedicated project team or a strong project management structure.
